About this Qualification

The IQ Level 3 Diploma in Health and Social Care (Adults) for England (QCF) is a qualification for individuals who work in a health and social care setting. It is applicable to a variety of job roles, including but not limited to residential settings, primary care environments, day services, personal assistance and domiciliary services. As this is a competence-based qualification, it is necessary for learners to already have access to either paid or voluntary work. It provides learners with formal recognition of their competence.

In the mandatory units, all learners will cover the fundamentals of communication, personal development, equality and inclusion, duty of care, safeguarding, health and safety, handling information, person centred approaches and the role of the health and social care worker. The wide-ranging optional units provide learners with the flexibility to choose those areas relevant to their particular setting. Learners can claim endorsed pathways in either Dementia or Adults with Learning Disabilities depending upon their choice of units; those who do not wish to specialise in either of these areas will achieve the Generic Health and Social Care pathway. A table displaying the requirements of each of these three pathways is available in the specification for this qualification. Objectives of the qualification include: preparing learners to progress to a qualification in the same subject area but at a higher level, meeting relevant programmes of learning, preparing learners for employment and supporting a role in the workplace.

The qualification forms the competence component of the Advanced Level Apprenticeship in Health & Social Care (England) at level 3.

Progression

Learners can progress to the Level 5 Diploma in Leadership for Health and Social Care and Children and Young People’s Services (England) (QCF) using credits already achieved, as there is an overlap of units.
